I have admired the crocheted version of the swirly dish cloth for some time. I came up with a knitted version that is worked in one piece in the round of worsted weight acrylic on size 8 16" circular needles, with the I cord hanging loop worked from the cast on & off tails. At 4 1/2", it fits nicely in the palm. Knit of 100% acrylic, it holds up well to dish duty. ( You can use cotton, linen, hemp or whatever fiber tickles your fancy. )The mesh pattern allows the Swirly scrubbie to dry quickly.
As a set, the Alabama Relief Dishcloth and Swirly Scrubbie make a great gift.
Pattern $1 on ravelry.com.
Take care and keep your yarn dry.
